Today we can eat meat.  We are thrashing this morning again.  We had spring chicken for dinner.  We thrashed 139 bu. of wheat.  Kuhns thrashed altogether 2300 bu.  This evening we all went out to Henry’s.  Gus Geodelle and family, Conrad Geodelle and family, Miss Hilda Klube & boyfriend, Mr. Fred Lindes & mother were all there.  They played music, accordion, violin, guitar.  Today you can see all kinds of fireworks.  Papa & Rosalia fixed fences this afternoon.  There is picnic in Columbia, picnic & fish fry in Oak Grove Park, one in Belleville, and a good many other places.
